With spring‘s official first day just around the corner, we’re finally starting to crawl out of that winter style slump. You know what we mean – endless top knots, “fancy” sweatpants, maybe even the occasional pair of Uggs (it’s okay to admit it). But as the weather begins to finally warm up, it won’t just be the flowers that begin to bloom. If you’re in need of a fun and stylish way to mark the shift in seasons, we suggest you take some inspiration from Julianne Hough’s recent haircut.

The dancer and actress was recently featured on her hairstylist Riawna Capri’s Instagram rocking a subtly different, much shaggier new ‘do. Riawna captioned the photo, “We’re bringing it back, and switchin’ it up, introducing @juleshough #ModernDayShag.” She goes on to say, “Loving this little change so much! When you’re growing out your hair, make sure to have fun in the process!!!”

Jules’ fresh, super layered cut is just another prime example that you don’t have to chop off six inches to totally refresh your look. Hilary Duff and Kate Middleton have also recently debuted new styles that look totally different without losing length. It’s tricky, but it can be done!
